Write Picture Books That Rhyme!

ABOUT THIS INTENSIVE:

Learn how to write wonderful rhyming stories, the kind that get read over and over again. Tim has strategies and checklists that will help.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

Lesson 1: Before Your Even Start Rhyming

  • Write down an idea that you have for a rhyming story.

Lesson 2: Determine If a Story Idea Is Right for a Picture Book

  • Make sure your story is age appropriate and will be the right length for a picture book. Use the checklist!

Lesson 3: Determine If Your Story Is Right for a Rhyming Picture Book

  • Tim has some questions you can ask to determine if your picture book needs to rhyme. He also has an assignment that you'll be able to use as a reference throughout the whole process.

Lesson 4: The Big, Ugly Block of Prose

  • You'll write your story as a big, ugly block of prose to work out your narrative. This will also give you something to mine for keywords later.

Lesson 5: Setting Up Your Story to Rhyme

  • In search of strong rhymes and the best word choices, Tim will have you using keywords and tools, like a rhyming dictionary and a thesaurus.

Lesson 6: Finding Your Story's "Inner Meter"

  • A great meter should add atmosphere to your story without distracting readers. It's important to find the meter that matches your story.

Lesson 7: Considerations as You Begin the Rhyming Process

  • Now that you're ready to write that first draft, Tim has some parting advice.
